Daily Devotional – 8/6/18 “I called your name!”

Look… I don’t know everything but I know God.

This morning, leaving the neurologist AGAIN with another medicine to “try” and alleviate these migraines and vertigo, I began to talk to God. As my head pounded, I started, what I thought was, a simple conversation with God but then the Holy Ghost took over and my talk went from being about me to calling out the names of others.

Some are people I’ve never met but connected through ministry or books. Others were my family and friends. I called names because some of you have been portraying to be strong, in public and for social media but in the darkness you’re weak and crying. I called your name because you’ve been calling everybody else name. I called your name because you need God immediately. I called your name, beloved because you’re at your breaking point.

I called your name, for over 30 minutes because I need God to do for you what you’ve been praying for. I called your name because I need your tears to stop and your fears to subside. I called your name because I need you to trust your destiny plan. I called your name because you’re in an unfamiliar place and you’re scared. I called your name because you didn’t know what else to do.

Don’t worry about me because while I was calling your name, somebody is calling mine. Thank you.

Rest now, servant, God is working.
